Mondo Cane (1962 - U.S. Version) GATT Restoration CAM, srl. V8002P586. The songs in the US version are also copyright.

Greetings (1968). This and the sequel "Hi Mom!" were both released without a notice. They were registered for copyright in the 80s and 90s so they might get taken down if uploaded to IA.

Western, Italian Style (1968) US TV Doco. Released without a notice. PD

White Comanche (1968 - U.S. Version) GATT Restoration EDEGA V8009P434

Boot Hill (1969 - U.S. Version) Never registered for GATT. However, it is eligible for restoration.

The Cat O'Nine Tales (1971 - U.S. Version) Never registered for GATT. However, it is eligible.

It Can Be Done... Amigo (1971 - U.S. Version) Never registered for GATT. However, it is eligible.

The Great Indian Wars 1840-1890 (1991 - oftenly claimed PD but I doubt it) Impossible for it to be PD.

So "Western, Italian Style" is the only one save to upload?

White Comanche, 1968, with Joseph Cotton and William Shatner is probably public domain. I haven't seen any copyright searches for it, but it is sold by Alpha Video, usually a good indicator of pd status.

Right, but if it has no copyright why does it have to be SOLD?

Lots of video companies sell pd movies. Look at "Night of the Living Dead". I've seen three or four different editions of this flick by different companies at the video store...on the same rack.

I don't life in the States, so the amount of public domain/B-pictures they sell here is modest (the reason why I visit this site so much).

How about the rest of the films on the list?

Our experts must be busy at the moment, but to my knowledge, GREETINGS is *probably* PD. I've seen DVD versions of it released by PD companies. I have no idea about the rest. Try checking the online Copyright registry.
